Today was a good day. My ‘blog girlfriend’ emailed me and made a pledge toward my Swimathon next Saturday raising my total funds raised to $80! Yea me!! Just $20 to go!! Once my girlfriend and I finished our chat, I dashed over to the other side of campus to what feels like my second home — athletics. What was great was that on the way, I ran into two of my ‘sons’ on their way to class. I collected my hugs and sent them on their way to make sure that they weren’t late. My meeting with athletics was to revisit this idea of giving our student athletes a better foundation in financial literacy. I am SO excited. I have just GOT to tell you about the ideas that we threw around — but first a little background.
